— A Guilford County company has made a big contribution to the recovery effort at Ground Zero.

Eagle Breathing Air Systems provides the air compressors that New York firefighters and other rescue workers at the World Trade Center use. The compressors make the air that fills the tanks cleaner and easier to breathe.

The Guilford County company sent eight mobile air compressors that will replace the old stationary models the firefighters have been using for years.
